R+B sensation Ashanti recently sought medical advice, after her passion for high-heeled shoes began to cripple her feet.

The ONLY YOU hitmaker adores designer stilettos, but admits her love of the high life was affecting her ability to perform.

She says, "I have two bones in my foot which are growing out of place from wearing pointy shoes.

"It really hurts, so my doctor made me custom moulds for my shoes.

"Your feet get damaged when you wear heels every day."
